ACE Doctoral Consortium


The Australasian Computing Education Conference (ACE) is coming up, and like last year, we will be holding a Doctoral Consortium. I am very happy to be chairing this event this year, and am looking forward to talking with all of the students. If you are a PhD student in CS Education, please consider applying!

Here is the information from the call for participation:

This is a call for participation in the Doctoral Consortium (DC) (  for the 16th Australasian Computing Education Conference (ACE 2014), a conference on research and innovation in computing education in its various aspects, at all levels and in all contexts ( The conference will be held in Auckland, New Zealand at the Auckland University of Technology in conjunction with Australian Computer Science Week (ACSW) (–mathematical-sciences/beyond-the-classroom/acsw-2014). The Doctoral Consortium with be held on Monday January 20th 2014 (prior to ACE 2014).
The DC will provide an opportunity for a group of PhD students to discuss and explore their research interests and career objectives with a panel of established researchers in computing education research. The DC is sponsored by the Software Engineering Laboratory of Auckland University of Technology and the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences.  The sponsorship covers full registration for the DC for up to 10 attendees, and for those wishing to stay on to attend the full set of ACSW conferences the $NZD165.00 sponsorship can be applied as partial payment of the full $NZD300.00 student registration fee.
The DC is open to students who are currently enrolled in any stage of doctoral studies with a focus on computing education research. The number of participants is limited to 10. Senior researchers in the field will provide feedback and suggestions for improvement of the students research. Each applicant should submit an application that includes the following information in one PDF file:
– Curriculum Vita
– Research summary, including motivation, background and literature to contextualize the research, research questions, methodologies used or planned, and any results obtained to date.
– Questions related to the research that the applicant would like to discuss and get feedback on at the doctoral consortium
The research summary should be 1-3 pages long, depending on the stage of the research. This summary will be made available to other participants of the doctoral consortium to allow them to provide feedback and prepare questions on the research.
